Yesterday stated out like any other Monday holiday. However by the afternoon, an emergency would change my plans.
The plan was to do some cleaning and some web work, unfortunately, I smelled smoke & it was nearby.
Due to my health history, I did not want to “hang out” and see where the smoke was coming from, so I bolted.
When I got settled and the other destination, I did a mental checklist.
- Do I have a place to go to in case of an emergency?
- Are my ICE (In Case of Emergency) numbers in place on my cellphone.
- Are my files backed up?
- Do I have insurance (homeowners or rental, Business and Medical)?
- Do I have a plan to grab the most important things I need?
Of course, one should not have to wait until they smell smoke to think about these things.
Most folks would say when the time changes (which is soon) is a good time to review emergency and evacuation plans.
